Photo Gallery: 2022 Adams County Heritage Festival

The 31st Annual Adams County Heritage Festival was held yesterday on a bright sunny day with perfect weather. Hundreds of people came to the Gettysburg rec park to celebrate culture with music dancing, bike rides, food and more.

The stage events were hosted by Mark Purdy, Master of Ceremonies, with Bob Ranalli as Sound Technician and Bob Keefer, Stage Manager.

Performers included Rodney Yeaple, Bagpiper, an opening invocation by the Very Rev. Father Vasyl Marchak, proclamations by the Adams County Commissioners and Gettysburg Mayor Rita Frealing, followed by the River Rhythm Ramblers, Di Dim Sae and Washington Samulnori (Korean Drum and Dance), Oni Lasana (African and African American stories), and Los Monstros (Latin Fusion).

The day also included children’s activities, cultural displays, the annual family bicycle parade, and the passport program where children learned learn about different people, places, and cultures as they had their visa stamped at each booth.

The Adams County Heritage Festival was founded by the Interfaith Center for Peace and Justice, Gettysburg, PA and is presented in partnership with the YWCA of Gettysburg & Adams County.
